MASTER OT J225939.54+020859.6 discovery - poss. superluminous SN in Sloan galaxy
MASTER-IAC auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L )discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 22h 59m 39.54s +02d 08m 59.6s on 2016-08-02.06248 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.8m (lim=20.1m). The OT is seen in 4 images. We have reference image without OT on 2016-06-11.13216 UT with mlim=20.6m.
There is SDSS225939.63+020858.8 galaxy in 1.7" with rmag=20.399, in this case our OT is SLSN
And there is SDSS225937.40+020909.4 gal. in 33.4" with rmag=16.79, => can be its SN

MASTER OT J185345.80-532209.9 discovery - new OT, possibly dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>4.4m
MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 18h 53m 45.80s -53d 22m 09.9s on 2016-08-01.84988 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.6m (lim=20.2m).
The OT is seen in 4 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2016-04-15.00345 UT with m_lim=20.5m.
There is no any sources in VIZIER, it means 22m POSS lim and current outburst amplitude more then 4.4m

MASTER Ot J205158.57+153622.6 detection - Sloan QSO flare
MASTER-IAC auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 20h 51m 58.57s +15d 36m 22.6s on 2016-07-29.00774 UT.
The OT unfiltered magn.is 18.4m (lim=19.6m). The OT is seen in 4 images. There is candidate to QSO in SDSS DR10 catalogue of candidate quasars (Brescia+, 2015) with red r'=21.068. We have ref.image without OT on 2015-10-14.83750 UT with mlim=20.2m.

MASTER OT J190942.21-560124.0 discovery - new OT, dwarf nova outburt with Ampl>3.8m
MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 19h 09m 42.21s -56d 01m 24.0s on 2016-08-01.85499 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.2m (limit 20.3m).
The OT is seen in 4 images. We have reference image without OT on 2016-05-14.95916 UT with m_lim=19.5m.
There is no optical sources in VIZIER database (22m POSS limit), but there is GALEX source in 1.8", that means the accretion, i.e. UG type of OT.
